It also serves to show us how important it is that we indeed do something because the eco system is a fragile thing and we need food and water from it so it is in our own best interest to get a move on. It's probably fairly old news, but I'd chew off a limb if it meant me sipping coffee and nibbling biscuits with Sir Attenborough.

From Boltzmann to quantum theory, from Einstein to loop quantum gravity, our understanding of time has been undergoing radical transformations.When humankind as a whole is in a position to give back to nature at least as much as we take, and repay some of our debt, we will all be able to lead more balanced lives. An ecosystem can be thought of as a complex web, where each species depends on many others, each of which depends, in turn, on many others still. His first job - after Cambridge University and two years in the Royal Navy - was at a London publishing house. We can stem human population growth by promoting economic development throughout the world, which leads to demographic transition. This was a short, simple, and definitely to the point kind of read, and when it comes to world issues, Attenborough is the King, and I think this book is thought-provoking and terribly necessary to anyone that happens to read it.

It was written by Attenborough and Hughes, who was assisted by the World Wide Fund for Nature's science team. Attenborough emphasizes that there’s no room for continued growth - population, GDP, consumption — on a closed-system planet worth limited resources. The book is divided into three parts: My Witness Statement, What Lies Ahead, and A Vision for the Future.To quote an extraordinary and morally consistent environmental activist "it's time to start panicking" because there is still hope that we can change this. It is the story of how we came to make this, our greatest mistake - and how, if we act now, we can yet put it right. To sum it up, it is a fascinating, emotive, rewarding, shocking, thought provoking and informative read, that is far more terrifying a read than any horror story I have read.

The next two sections talk about what lies ahead of us if we continue living as we do in the present and his vision for the future with proper and sustainable efforts to rewild the world. The things that are expected to happen until the year 2100, another blink of an eye, if we don’t change our ways.Sir David Frederick Attenborough is a naturalist and broadcaster, who is most well-known for writing and presenting the nine "Life" series, produced in conjunction with BBC's Natural History Unit. We all know about the ongoing climate debate and, like the author, some of us are willing to accept the indisputable evidence that climate change is seriously affecting our planet. It is my sincere wish that Attenborough follows the example of Chris Packham, another fantastic naturalist who went vegan earlier this year because he understood that he cannot love nature and talk about the longevity of life on this planet whilst he took part in the leading cause for its destruction. What I liked about his witness statement is that he outlined solutions, which were quite comprehensive in scope, to deal with our unsustainable lifestyles and the damage we've done to our planet.
